Iqbal to Jinnah - May 23, 1936

Introductory Note
A meeting of the Punjab Provincial Muslim League was held on May 12, 1936 under the presidentship of Allama Iqbal. One of the resolutions passed at this meeting was to welcome the proposal of Mr. Jinnah to establish a Central Parliamentary Board in order to organise elections for the Provincial legislatures under the Government of India Act 1935. On May 21, 1936, Mr. Jinnah announced the names of the members of this Central Board. Four members from the Majlis-i-Ahrar and three from Ittihad-i-Millat were nominated to this Board among the 11 members from the Punjab. This unequal representation led to mutual bickerings. Ittihad-i-Milliat was lukewarm in its support of the League while the Majlis-i-Ahrar later on dissociated itself from the Parliamentary Board. A pamphlet was issued on May 8, 1936 on behalf of Allama Iqbal and 14 other leaders associated with the Provincial Muslim League, appealing to the Muslim public to vote for Muslim League candidates. The Unionist Party was strongly criticised for its anti-Muslim policy of destroying Muslim unity and integrity.

23rd May, 1936

Dear Mr. Jinnah,

Thank you so much for your letter which I received a moment ago. I am glad to see that your work is progressing. I do hope that the Punjab parties specially the Ahrar and the Ittihad Millat will eventually, after some bickering, join you. A very enthusiastic and active member of the Ittihad told me so a few days ago. About M. Zafar Ali Khan the Ittihad people do not themselves feel sure. However there is plenty of time yet, and we shall soon see how the electorate generally feels about the Ittihad sending their men to the Assembly.

Hoping you are well and looking forward to meeting you.

Yours sincerely,

(Sd.) Mohammad Iqbal
